Matchboxholder with MiniMagnolia

 Some time ago I came to remember a thing my grandmother had on her kitchenwall - a holder for matchboxes. Hers were made out of wood, but I thought it might be made out of cardstock and papers as well. SO - I found my ruler, pencil and eraser, and started drawing, measuring, cutting, folding and trying - and found a way to make a Matchboxholder :)
This is how the second turned out. 
On the first I didn't make the halfcircleshaped slits in the sides to get a better grip on the matchbox to get it out. I didn't think of those until my boyfriend (without nails ;) ) came and suggested it...
The holder has room for 4 matchboxes (all boxes have DP on top), 
and with such a tiny little decorating area I had to use one of my MiniMagnolias
(sadly forgotten stamps, think I have to put them somewhere visible, to remember to use them more...)
Before I give it away, I'll try my luck in these challenges:
Tilda's Town #48 - Flowers Everywhere
Papirdokkene - Alt er lov
Party Time Tuesdays #115 - Anything But A Card
NSHK #71 - Bruk utstansere (Punches/ Dies)
TTCRD - Anything Goes
Tuesday Throwdown #142 - Fancy Folds
